Just got done adding a couple more items to the Weekend Widget in the right sidebar. Let's get this weekend rolling with a nice evening Sift.
A- There's a new restaurant in the Gale South Beach, according to Eater Miami.
Dolce Italian covers a lot of ground at the Gale, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Choose from the upstairs wood-paneled dining room with grey leather banquettes that has a 1950s classic yet sexy feel, the lobby level bar area for some appetizers and light bites, or have a pizza for lunch on the pool deck.B- What can you expect to find in your CSA share box this week? Redland Rambles has the answer.
C- Texas de Brazil has a lot of meat, according to Boy Writes Miami.
The amount of meat they have is mind-blowing. Filet mignon, lamb chops, bacon-wrapped chicken, picanha, filet wrapped in bacon, leg of lamb, too many different sausages, and of course, shame.D- Sex and the Beach preps us for HeartCamp 2013.
HeartCamp will gather speakers and participants from all walks of life to discuss all matters of the heart, from the physical to spiritual and creative aspects of what it means to be a heart-centered being. We'll discuss all kinds of juicy topics -- sex, relationships, nutrition, breathing, heart health, following your heart's desires in your career and life, motherhood, pregnancy, heartbreak. communications, neuroscience and so much more.E- Food for Thought reviews the latest pop-up dinner at Harry's Pizzeria.
For the past year, Schwartz has been bringing some of the country's best chefs to Miami's doorstep to cook for an evening at Harry's. On our last visit to Chicago, Kahan's Blackbird and The Publican were two of our favorite meals, so when I saw his name on the upcoming schedule, I made sure to secure a spot.F- Belle Isle Blog updates us on the Collins Canal bike path that is being built.
Construction on the seawall and bike path was halted last fall after Miami-Dade prosecutors arrested former Miami Beach procurement director Gus Lopez on 63 charges including racketeering, bid-tampering and illegal compensation in connection with a dozen different city contracts. The bike path contract, with Harbour Construction, is one of the projects tied to that investigation.G- Bark Bark Woof Woof has some info on the unsavory characters who are organizing tomorrow's Gun Appreciation Day.
It would be grossly unfair to gun owners, collectors, or anyone associated with Gun Appreciation Day’s organizing team or the membership of the NRA to tar them all as white supremacists or neo-Nazis. But you have to wonder why they would be attracting the sponsorship of these volk.H- Gun Free Zone compares owning an assault weapon to Rosa Parks sitting in the front of a bus.
I- It's all about Marco Rubio love in Miami-Dade County these days, including at Political Cortadito.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott came to town to watch Sosa get sworn in by her old friend and colleague, Sen. Marco Rubio, a onetime VP hopeful and potential presidential nominee who began his career with her at the West Miami city commission. Well, he actually left before she took her oath. Guess it was really just to spew about Miami and Miami-Dade and how great we are (read: “vote for me.”).
